Hi guys, just saying hi.

Im from canberra, have been on a road bike for the last 5 or so years and looking at getting a mountain bike and getting back into it :) Still at uni full time and working during the week as well.

A friend has a Giant Alias aluxx 6000 that he bought back in 2010 and has never used it, which hes looking at selling to me. Any idea on what it would be worth? (about $1200 when he paid for it)

see you out there some time!

even in unused condition, i would not pay anmore than $500
the alias was a fairly entry level Giant, rockshox Dart forks are very basic, and the brakes were shimano m485's i think, which were not the best either.
but it could be a good platform to cut your teeth on, upgrade parts as you go
wolcome to RB, might see you out at bruce ridge some time!

I've just bought the same bike a 2009 Giant Alias, my first mountain bike, paid $230. It does need new tyres but that's about it for now.
Hopefully I can find some tyres that will be good all rounders.

Hey Sprigo,
Here is cheap tyres if your still looking

If you are riding Bruce Ridge now then you will be able to ride Stromlo, there is a great number of trails that cater to all levels of riding. Stromlo is just much steeper and bigger area to cover. You could easily spend a whole day out there. Just head out there and take your time and enjoy yourself.

OK, so a guy buys a bike for $1200 and NEVER uses it? If you believe that, you'll pay too much. It's worth no more than $500 as someone as already mentioned. Offer him $400 since he never actually uses it...
